Five of the six Ugandans wounded in the Monday night bomb blast on a bus in Nairobi have been released from hospital. A Ugandan woman, Taula Emama, is still receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital. Police spokesperson Judith Nabakooba says Emama sustained severe abdominal injuries during the explosion on a Kampala Coach bus. She says she is in intensive care undergoing emergency treatment. The Ugandans discharged from hospital are Michael Richard Kasaganyo, Herbert Mugenyi, Dennis Kinyera, Faustin Kiwa and Peter Pakuwande. The Ugandan police say a total of 33 people were injured in the blast and two people were killed. This figure is much lower than that given by the police in Kenya. One of the dead is a Tanzanian national, Albert John Mulanda. It is suspected that Mulanda carried a box of explosives, which were detonated when he attempted to forcefully board the bus on Monday evening. A team of Ugandan police who investigated the July 11th terrorist attacks in Kampala have traveled to Nairobi help in the case. They are expected to contribute their knowledge of terrorist cells and covert operations with their Kenyan counterparts. ###
